FS#752 - Cannot apply updates to 3.8.12 beta

I tried to update my 3.8.12 64-bit beta installation with the 14 updates in “Software 3.30.6”. That fails.

[I do not appear to be able to upload an image file and hence cannot paste the screen snapshot I took.]

The message (in a semi-transparent overlay window) indicated:

Unable to download updates:
E: http://repo.buster.elive.elivecd.org buster/main amd64 smb-admin amd64 3.8.14+git43bbo34df-6buster1 is not (yet) available )Something wicked happened resolving ‘repo.buster.elive.elivecd.org:http’ (-5 - No address associated with hostname))

“OK” I said to myself, “I should be able to download the 3.8.14 64-bit beta ISO and re-install.” That I do not seem to be able to do without coughing up more money for the download.

Hi John,

Thanks for the report

It sounds like an issue with your internet, your issue may be probably already fixed

Try it manually running "apu", if no errors are shown with the domain/urls, all is fine again :), if you want to upgrade manually your machine you can also run "apug"
